Peculier Mark Development
We began with how the name was created, and studied the history of English parishes. We wanted something inspired by the origins, but blasted into the present.
We began with a logotype steeped in European history: Blackletter. This style of type was drawn in manuscripts and used to spread information. We used it as inspiration for this direction.
Honing The Mark
We really wanted to hone in on what could potentially be a “master” mark for the brand to compliment the logotype, but also extend that thinking into the sub-marks for beer styles.
We were also inspired by parish windows and stain-glass patterns.
